KAZAM Tornado 348 16GB Smartphone - White or Black - £99.99 @ ebuyer

Found 3rd Feb 2016
I know it's not an iPhone, etc. but this phone gets decent reviews at much higher prices (like £250!) so at £100 it seems like a bit of a bargain for a decent midrange performer? I'm the first to admit I'm no phone expert but I'm tempted to get one of these for my wife to use as a replacement for her ageing MOTO-G.

Memory can't be expanded but 16GB is pretty useful for modest use so isn't a complete deal-breaker for many.

Covered in gorilla glass 3 allegedly.

*edit - also available at Argos at this price from what I can tell.

This seems pretty sub par for the price to be honest, there are much better options available for this price, especially if you are willing to buy a Chinese phone.
You're better off getting either the Smart Ultra 6 or Sony Xperia M4 Aqua from Vodafone on pay as you go and just paying for an unlock code off eBay. The phones cost from £99 - £115.

Also the specs are much better on those phones than this.
I got the mother in law a Smart Ultra 6 and I can honestly say it is an absolute bargain.....much much faster than my S3.
I think the 3 year warranty and free screen replacement if it smashes also the AMOLED screen may justify the price.
It's ok, but Kazam will never update their phones to the latest operating system, so it'll be on Android 4.4 forever unless you're willing to flash a new ROM onto it.
If after small screen Moto e in Tesco for £69 with a Snapdragon but only 8gbs but with sd slot is better bet...
Still not as good as a Smart Ultra 6 which is the same price, avoid!
Battery seems a bit small. I would go for a moto g on vodafone or the smart ultra 6 also on vodafone, easy and cheap to unlock.
nice (but rare I would say) screen size but 1gb ram is a deal breaker
